Ghost Recon: Advanced Starfighter (April 28, 2006)

Long Live the Confederation!
Chris, ace and I came across something fun while exploring the junkyard map in Ghost Recon: Advance Warfighter -- some CF-117b Rapiers! The two pictures on the left are from Ghost Recon... and the picture on the right is the first ever from the set of the Wing Commander movie, the arrival of the Rapier canopies. The scrapped cockpits in Ghost Recon actually belong to a pair of MiG-21 Fishbeds. Because of the extreme similarities, rumor has persisted that the Rapiers were also modified from MiG cockpits. In fact, the Rapier sets were built from a pair of British Electric Lightning jets.
